Pain Relief for Meibomian Gland Dysfunction

Meibomian Gland Dysfunction is a condition that can affect the eyes, bringing general discomfort and prolonged irritation and leaving the sufferer in need of soothing pain relief. People who suffer from similar problems such as dry eyes or blepharitis have often sought comfort in using microwave heat packs to ease their condition in a natural and cost effective way.

Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) can be treated in a similar manner. MGD as it is often known, is caused when the eyelid glands become blocked and are unable to let out their natural secretions that would normally provide lubrication to the eyes.

In the upper and lower eyelid there are around 30 openings and the Meibomian glands can be found here. When they Meibomian gland is disturbed this can result in several symptoms such as a gritty sensation or feeling that something is stuck in your eye and in some cases a burning or general soreness of the eyelids.
